has no interest in reducing the size of the federal government. now democrats before him he's dangling the prospect of future budget cuts in the hopes republicans will take the bait. with that in mind, it's important to remember the words of president ronald reagan, he wrote them in his own autobiography, and described in great deal a deal he struck with the democrats in 1980s, promising $3 in spending cuts for every dollar in a tax increase. reagan wrote, the democrats reneged on their pledge and we never got those cuts. perhaps that's why some on the right are calling foul on these negotiations. >> the only secret talks have revealed, a government that skips from one crisis to the next. all of this secrecy allows the president to petition himself frankly and being in favor of a balanced plan. that's what he said, i favor a balanced plan. basically it increases taxes to fuel more spending. that's what the plan is. the white house plans to raise taxes to expand government. that's not acceptable. >> sean: republicans, i hope you're listening. joining with me more, leslie marshall and bi

's grave for the obvious fact that we believe that the assad government has weapononized chemical and biological agents and put them in a position where they can be used fairly rapidly. as you look back over the 20 months of this conflict, this follows a series of events, one leading to the other which people said could not happen. this began, remember, with peaceful demonstrations. and when assad was unable to control them or suppress, he began to fire on his own people and they began to defend themselves in a very unfair fight which everyone thought we should take sides on the side of freedom and give the freedom fighters the weapons with which they could fight. it happened much too late. and people said, at least he's not using his air force to attack his own people and then he began to attack his own people from the air. now more than 40,000 killed. so when we see the government of assad weaponize chemical and biological agents and put them in bombs, we know this is a leader with no limits and unfortunately he follows his father who proved capable of using weapons against his

about the role of government than they are to supporting our men and women in uniform. what they have done today is laid their cards on the table. they will use each and every opportunity to keep their base paranoid, angry, in an effort to undermine our democracy. i believe there are smart, committed republicans there wanting to dedicate themselves to service our country. but they have to get this wing of their party in line. they are dangerous to our democracy. >> do you think there's sole searching going on? what have we become? >> i don't think among those 38 who voted no. i don't think so at all. i think with john mccain, who after all was the standard bearer in 2008, has mixed history with the conservative wing. even john boehner and i would bet you somewhere in the recesses of his heart and mind mitch mcconnell. mitch mcconnell is up in 2014 in kentucky. he never wins going away in kentucky. that's an issue there. there will be lots of others. but not these 38. they really do see it as the hand of the united states in world government reaching down into local towns in utah and t

are dysfunctional and cannot govern, et cetera, et cetera. in terms of dealing with the policy problem, which is you have this massive and growing debt, you have to bring in more revenues. there's multiple ways to do it, but critical ways to raise rates on the top end. it was what the election was about. republicans want to play the game where they think they get something. at the end of the day they lose worse if we go over the cliff. >> that's an interesting insight because you have alan simpson on the "today" show asked dp one side is a winner or loser off the cliff. here's what he had to say, chris. >> when you have leaders from the administration saying i think it's to the advantage of the democrats to go off the cliff or i think it's an advantage of the republicans to go off the cliff or the president to go off the cliff, that's like betting your country. there's stupidity involved in that. >> chris? >> well, listen, you know, i'm not saying it's necessarily the best policy course. i wish people could sit down and negotiate this, but at the end of the day think about it from the president's pe

service by the russian government. sergei magnitsky's death is part of a troubling belief on human rights in russia. activists are harassed for speaking out against fraud, corruption or denial of basic rights. we saw what happened with sergei magnitsky when he tried to speak out against corruption. i'm saddened that the leadership of a great nation such as russia is resorting to these hideous tactics. they are a throwback to the soviet era, the worst of the soviet era. our friends, the russian people, deserve a vision that looks forward to a new future that includes freedom and human rights. not the past which had sad chapters of the denial of both of these. i'm pleased to speak in support of this bill. unfortunately, it doesn't include the original cardin amendment. the original cardin amendment had a global reach and said that we would treat virtually anyone guilty of these crimes the same way, denying visas and freezing their assets in the united states. that provision incidentally is similar to an amendment which i offered on the defense authorization bill as it related to supporting

the connection between this situation and the situation we were in around 1995 when there was a government shutdown. republicans thought they could drive this to the bitter end, and what happened? the american voters actually blamed them, the republicans, for what happened. i think it's a pattern in american politics when things happen that are, in effect, harmful government shutdowns, if you will, or breakdowns of process, the blame usually ends up on the side of the obstructionists in the republican party. i think there are enough republicans who want to win re-election who see that the strategy of obstruction failed them in this last election. they want to pivot and make a rebrand of the republican party. those are the folks that are the deciding votes in the republican caucus, enough to combine with democrats who shorten that margin in the house to get something passed. >> an interesting note, erin. congresswoman bass mentioned another possible strategy from democra democrats. earlier told nancy pelosi tsd if speaker boehner refuses to schedule this for a vote, democrats will introduce

of the government. they have to prove that to the judge. that's not really a check on government power because the judge could be an obama appointee. as much as i disagree with president obama, as much as i think he has been a divisive president, in many ways has failed to lead, i want to disassociate myself from the concept that you can't give this commander in chief the powers that commander in chiefs have enjoyed in other wars because we hate him so much. and to my friends who get on the internet and talk radio and stoke this paranoia, we're afraid enough for good reason. this is a dangerous world. we're about to walk off the fiscal cliff. we have people out there trying to undermine our way of life. there is a lot to be afraid of -- al qaeda coming back to our shores, recruiting american citizens to help their endeavors. i hate to say it. in every war we have ever been in, there have been occasions where americans joined the enemy. and in world war ii, that happened. you had german saboteurs land in long island, aided and abetted by american citizens sympathetic to the nazis. all of those
